Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia- The results of the 2022 National Financial Literacy and Inclusion Survey (SNLIK) show that there is a gap between the national literacy and financial inclusion index of 35.42%. Specifically for the insurance industry, the literacy rate is 30.46% while the inclusion rate only reaches 16.63%.
BNI Life Business Director, Neny Asriany said that the gap between financial literacy and inclusion illustrates that people do not understand and are skilled in using financial products & services. The low level of inclusion is not caused by not optimal literacy, but due to needs and economic factors.
Meanwhile, BRI Insurance’s Chief Financial & Operational Officer, Sony Harsono Widyo S. mentioned the importance of efforts to encourage financial inclusion and literacy, including the insurance sector through improving service and trust in insurance products and expanding distribution channels and accessibility.
